Paul Sequence Ferguson

At the age of twelve, Paul “ SEQUENCE “ Ferguson picked up his guitar and taught himself to play by attentively listening and adroitly emulating the musical mastery of such greats as Al Di Meola, Carlos Santana, George Benson and Wes Montgomery. With the technical knowledge that enabled Paul, to advance to the position of president of a computer software/web publishing company, and the discipline and determination he acquired as a black belt in Shotokan Karate under the tutelage of Mr. Errol Bennett, Paul explored the principles of the keyboard and subsequently developed the techniques, melodies and rhythms that produce the unique sound of SEQUENCE...

Paul, Your music makes me smile! So refreshing to hear truth, beauty, and inspiration in your songs; it reminds me of why I chose to be a musician! Thanks for your gift of song. God bless you always, Bobbi Humphrey Paul “Sequence” Ferguson'S Quantum Physics CD ...(squelch)...The handoff has occurred, “Sequence” computers now controlling...firing chain is armed...T minus 10 seconds, go from main engines to start, 7...6...5...three engines up and burning...3...2...1... and Lift Off of Paul “Sequence” Ferguson’s extraordinary CD, “Quantum Physics” beginning America’s new journey into the style of solar smooth jazz and beyond...This vehicle has cleared the tower... If you’ve ever experienced the excitement of Mission Control’s successful Shuttle launches, then let me grab your enthusiasm and point it in the direction of this “Amazingly Amazing” project created in the heart and soul of sound sequence master, Paul “Sequence” Ferguson. Each song on this expertly executed mission of music is worth the galactic trip to the store to purchase your own star encrusted copy. Yes, this is an amazing fluid flow through the galaxies in raw rhythmic ambiance with an amazingly creative captain who commands every instrument heard on each of his tracks. I just want to know how he “works” it so effortlessly without worry of “Entanglement” and collision with asteroids. This song delivers a roll so sweet and smooth you never notice the booster tanks fall away as he throttles up for “M- Theory,” a super sonic nujazz salsa tribute to Eddie Benitez, who by the way, accompanies him on percussion instruments that reverberate “holla back” with dynamic rhythmic groove and interstellar charisma. Entering orbit and glancing out the window of the cabin as the world pulls away from our consciousness, “Sequence” directs you to unbuckle your thoughts and “Free your Mind 2 Day” as you float the weightlessness of space and song. As the journey to distant planets along your neuronal pathway begins, controls on the cockpit are handed off to “The Observer” Deron King who navigates the style of Paul “Sequence” Ferguson with artistic flow and articulation. It ain’t Hip Hop, it ain’t Flowerty, and it ain’t smooth jazz. I just gotta name it surrealistic soul, and slap five to the first planet we pass on this exquisite journey. Oh, by the way, thanks for reminding us Paul, you also do a funky bass, because “Thank You Marcus Miller” lets the universe know that you are coming across the sky with command and authority of lead AND bass guitar, drums, keyboard AND synthesizer, announcing loudly, that you are pumpin’ and coming in peace. “Playing at the Plank Scale” is one of those moody melodies that twinkles in the velvet silence of introspection. I should have been the fly on the cabin wall when he charted this trajectory, because it is fueled by an erotic guitar solo and complimentary synthesized sequencing. “Timing,” however, is my favorite with it’s driving sensuality and grinding beat that wrestles you from the gravitational pull of the Sun straight towards the powerful vortex of a black hole where once on the other side the event horizon of “String Theory” serenades you sweetly and completely as you travel deeper in to the quantum space of every “Sequence” song. Energetically orchestrated with string instruments overlaying a cosmic funk beat, I just want to drop my space suit and groove in my birthday suit up close and personal as the track warps through the cosmos. The song “Create Your Own Day” is a saucy testimonial tune that gently enfolds you while adrift in the blackness of peace among the stars. But, not until you are cuddling with the captain of you own shuttle do you notice the “Stars in Your Eyes” as a languid and mystical voyage shared with Paul “Sequence” Ferguson’s “Quantum Physics” flight. From the musical affirmations of “Quantum Physics Words of Wisdom” Interpreted by Virginia Adams to the lyrical prayer, “Mother I Miss You” followed by the meditative “Self Awareness” listeners are treated to a musical tour through the heavens in the of abundance of rich, captivating sound “going where no man has gone before.” It is truly enthralling to see how beautifully and perfectly blended each song on this CD project delivers quality and texture through rhythm, sensuality, brilliance and seamless ambiance. If this is what traveling to the far reaches of the universe is like, then beam up Scottie, for the next mission, just as long as Paul “Sequence” Ferguson is the “number one” captin on my starship.
